Today's post is simple. Just the recipe.
I don't have any stories about french toast, and can't think of anything interesting to talk about today, unless you want to hear about my waking up with a sore and drippy nose. No? Didn't think so. When my oldest niece was little, she had the cutest way of saying in a stuffy little voice, "I have a cold nose, Aunt Heather." She lives too far away now, and I miss her.
So without any ado, for an almost "wordless Wednesday" post, I give you (healthy) French Toast with Maple Mango Chutney...
Mmmm... Breakfast for dinner, anyone?
French Toast with Maple Mango Chutney
- 1 mango, diced (peel and seed discarded)
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla, divided
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 4 slices whole wheat bread
In a medium saucepan, toss the diced mango with the cornstarch. Add the orange juice and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce to low. Mash the mango a little with the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher, but leave the mixture chunky. Stir in the maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes while you prepare the french toast.
Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Spray with non-stick spray.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture then cook on the griddle for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown and crisp.
Top the french toast with the mango chutney to serve.
Yields 2 servings.
